He didn't have much give up in him. He was a terrific cheerleader for those who worked with him and he a never afraid to learn new things. It was in large part to his enthusiasm that B5 even made it to the screen.

So far I haven't seen anything in Variety or the Hollywood Reporter but I'm pretty sure Mr. Copeland's a reliable source.

RIP Mr. Netter, and thanks for all you did.

That is sad news. Luckily, his memory will forever live on through one of the greatest television shows of all time.

Amen to that. Like I said over on JMS News. 95 is a ripe old age, but I am REALLY sad I'll never get a chance to have a conversation with him about Babylon 5. :(

That is sad news. It doesn't matter that he was quite old when he died. It is just one more death in a long line of people from our beloved series that has passed, mostly WAY too soon.

I didn't find any "news" sites with information on his death, but here is something from legacy.com.

RIP, President Netter.

Many of you asked for me to let you know about a memorial or life celebration for Doug Netter. There are no plans for any. Doug was a very private person and the family decided that was the best way to honor him.
I suggest you enjoy the memories you may have and lift a glass in his honor. And if it is a vodka martini with at least three olives, Doug will be smiling.
